Appliance Damage

If you’ve experienced damage due to an unauthorised voltage variation (e.g. power surge), you could be eligible for compensation.

For example: Electricity - Jenny was at work during the day and returned home to find her television would not switch on. Jenny sought the opinion of a qualified technician who confirmed the television was damaged due to a power voltage variation after the power had gone off. So, Jenny jumped onto the Jemena claims page to lodge a claim for compensation.
